without a doubt one of my biggest highlights of a given year is the time I get to spend with my  Federation family  at National Convention.  There is always so much to do, so many people to see and so much energy in the air. One of the Places where this energy is most     noticeable is amongst us in the NABS  family.
  there is always such a buzz at our meetings or around our exhibit hall table or at Monte Carlo, where so many people connect and re-connect, support our efforts as a part of our great movement.
  The best part of it all is getting to meet the great folks who give of their time to work along side our board members to make our activities a  fantastic success!
 This year… will it be you who’s a part of it all?
 you ask “how?” 
 I answer “read below and find out!”!

Hey Nabs!! 
>> As you all know, the National association of blind students is
>> planning a lot of exciting things at national convention. What you may
>> not know however is that we as a board can’t do all of it ourselves.
>> So we would very much appreciate your help in making the nabs
>> activities a success this year!
>> Where we would most appreciate your assistance is in three areas
> 1: marshalers for the NABS meeting.   
> They  are the few, the proud,   the people who make sure you know  where the action is. 
> They help you find the right line to stand in.   Without them, we don't know how the night might go.
> five to ten people are needed for the NABS meeting    
> 2.
>> .  Assistance in staffing the nabs table located in the exhibit hall.
>> Here you will be partnered up with a nabs board member selling   nabs
>> items and handing out nabs literature.  The schedule for tabling looks
